Abstract

UK greenhouse gas emissions are declining and have been declining for some time. The UK has a framework of long-run targets developed by the Committee on Climate Change, an independent body of experts advising government. Despite this, things are far from well when it comes to climate change in the UK and there are concerns about the country’s ability to reach the 2050 target. The UK must do more to ensure it meets its climate targets. In doing so, UK policy-makers need to keep in mind that the policy objective must be to reduce global emissions.
